    Geez, I didn't even realize that Bobby Phils and Malik Sealy had been killed. I remember both of those players, but I don't remember them dying.

    UK had a basketball recruit that died during a game his senior season. I believe his name was John Stewart. Please correct me if I am wrong about the name. It was very tragic. UK honored him on what would have been his senior night at UK if he had lived. I thought a very nice thing to do.

    Phills was speeding with teammate David Wesley in a car behind him (Wesley says they were not racing), when he was killed in a crash. Broad daylight, neither player was drunk or anything, just being silly/stupid.
